This book was a Manual on Health Education to be used by teachers across the hygiene syllabus. It has two main parts, ‘Subject Matter for Health Practice and Health Talks for Young Children’ and ‘Outlines of Health Lessons for Older Children’. The author hoped that teachers would not use it prescriptively but as a guide to the ‘generally accepted principles of hygiene upon the observance of which, in the ordinary daily life of the individual, the development and maintenance of sound bodily health depends.’
